    The speaker was GREAT. Sad that those who WANTED to avoid the talk in favor of holding free conversation didn't seem willing to hold the conversations, despite lots of encouragement and support. But they managed to listen to a great speaker and a truly outstanding translator, Amina.

    This MAY require two rooms with the speaker in the larger room and free conversations in the regular, smaller room.

    Setup will begin at 5:00 pm Tuesday evening.
